Unsolved Murder Attracts New Attention

From the BDN's article about the unsolved murder of Alice Hawkes, a 23-year-old woman who was found slain in her Westbrook apartment at 8 Spring Street on October 4, 1987:
Investigators, prosecutors and forensic experts
meet periodically to review specific cold case files, and in January they
focused on Hawkes’ homicide. On Thursday last week, Deputy Attorney General Bill
Stokes said that there was definitely renewed interest and that the lead
detective had been given specific instructions on how to proceed with the
investigation. While he would not provide specifics about the investigation,
Stokes said he believed the case was “very solvable.”
